that, i have no idea, but i did my best. i looked at the end of all the research income and i said, what can i do with all that stuff? i tried this way and that way. finally i threw up my hands and said let's tell the story. it was the only thing i knew how to do. it was to tell the story. so i told the story of a man who wanted to build a railroad to key west every once in was impossible. when you look at it that way, it was pretty easy. he starred in miami, florida, and you get to key west, florida. the only difference is i like to tell my students, i teach fiction and i tell my students that when you get to a point in the novel where you need a fact, make it up. it's fiction, after all.
